Sound Quality
Great Tone, lighter than a Les Paul, but NOT  start or 335. Somewhat individual.
Reliability/Durability
Mine's a 78 - nearly 30 yrs old at time of writing (2018) and is still in great condition. Solid as a rock construction, the neck has a a 70's volute and so is stronger than a Les Paul headstock. You don' see many Marauders with neck breaks/repaired necks.
Price/Value
Paid £350 for it years ago and it has more than doubled in value in the 17 yrs I've owned it.
General Comments
Original replacements can be hard to source, so be prepared to change pickups for non original if needed.It's NOT a Les Paul, it's not a Strat, it's not a 335 - it is it's own guitar - and it has it's own voice - try one (if you can find one) and play it first, you'll be surprised.
Reviewer's Background
Previously a Bass Player, now a Guitar Player. Retired from stage playing but still records for fun, and plays for own amusement.
